Swap Space
Debugging large programs can exhaust the swap space on your machine. If you run out of swap space, TotalView exits with a fatal error, such as:
*Fatal Error: Out of space trying to allocate
This error indicates that TotalView failed to allocate dynamic memory. It can occur anytime during a debugging session. It can also indicate that the data size limit in the C shell is too small. You can use the C shell’s limit command to increase the data size limit. For example:
limit datasize unlimited
*job_t::launch, creating process: Operation failed
This error indicates that the fork() or execve() system call failed while TotalView was creating a process to debug. It can happen when TotalView tries to create a process.
